The key to being confident in the evaluation of skeletal trauma imaging is to rely on the identification of injuring patterns. For each mechanism of injury applied to a specific skeletal section, the latter can only present traumatic features predefine; this is called an injuring pattern. Skeletal Trauma: A Mechanism-Based Approach of Imaging combines the knowledge of both surgeons and radiologists to propose a mechanism-based approach to imaging in skeletal trauma. This book uses over 30 original schemas, details common radiological views, and how they’re performed, and invites the reader to investigate the imaging features and determine the encountered mechanism of injury.

Key Features

  • Presents a comprehensive review of skeletal injuries using a mechanisms-based approach
  • Reviews relevant general and radiologic anatomy
  • Assists reader in understanding why and where injuries occur and how they present on imaging
